All the latest news and promotions from Thailand's TEFL course providers.


Island TEFL are looking for partners for their Krabi and Chiang Mai locations. If you fancy being your own boss and enjoying good earning potential, then get in touch with Phil Dunne. They are also looking for representatives to market the Island TEFL brand around the world. If you fancy doing your TEFL course with Island TEFL, ajarn readers will receive a 10% discount on all courses in January 2011. If you need more information on any of the above, visit the Island TEFL website  You can also email Phil Dunne or call him at 0847554968.


International House Bangkok will be running their CELTA course on a convenient part-time basis starting on Monday 24th January. This is a good option for those who are just too busy to take the regular four-week intensive program. You should also note that the course content is exactly the same for the part-time program as it is for the full-time one. If you can spare five Saturdays and Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings over a ten-week period, then this could be the course for you. More info on the IH website or you can e-mail them directly.


Chiang Mai has been voted the second best city in the world by the readers of Travel and Leisure magazine (run by American Express) so it's obviously not a bad place to do a TEFL course. Apart from their regular TEFL course offering, SEE TEFL has a one-day cultural awareness program to smooth the transition of moving to Thailand. You can get a taste of it on this YouTube video


SIT  provides comprehensive personal support for trainees looking to learn about their TEFL course and get settled in Bangkok or Chiang Mai. This includes their free Survival Guides and Accommodation Guides, and unlimited personal support from the trainers themselves. As always, all SIT courses will run with a minimum of one full-time trainer for every four trainees accepted on to the course. The SIT Program has also been busy forging contacts with employers around the country and they are now able to assist graduates in finding teaching positions throughout the Kingdom.
For more information go to the SIT website or contact Steve: 081 646 8410. From abroad: +6681 646 8410
